This week, Access Hollywood obtained a statement from Bill Cosby’s daughter Evin which reads:
He is the FATHER you thought you knew. The Cosby Show was my today’s tv reality show. Thank you. That’s all I would like to say 🙂
While that may be all she has to say to the media, on Facebook she is a lot more expressive, posting pictures of her parents in happier times and sharing her mother Camille Cosby’s public statement along with the words ,”Love my mom.”
In regards to her opinions of rape, she writes:
Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone. When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim. They are not ONLY destroying innocent people’s life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped
And she, like her mother, goes on to question the validity of the accusations:
Drugged — you can remember the whole damn day but you were drugged? Just sayin. Memory — you can remember you looked at (allegedly) each other, people were starring allegedly remembering your home address allegedly the name you called him allegedly But you were allegedly drugged
Despite the shift in public perception toward her dad, Evin’s social media page has become a hub of support from those who still believe Bill Cosby is being unjustly persecuted.
To them, she writes:
I would like to thank EVERYONE that has been sharing, voicing and putting their beautiful positive energy out there for me and my family. There will always be jealous, vengeful and crazy people out there to break anyone down. Everyday we wake up and appreciate the love and support from everyone. There’s more positive in life then we think. It’s the BS that can be overwhelming. We keep fighting each day. The challenges in life can only make us stronger. The ones that are angry can’t live as easy as the ones that can love, RESPECT and not to find the easy way out by making FALSE accusations. It’s a shame how some people sit behind the computer waiting for bad things to happen to someone. Isn’t it easier to be happy? And to want the best for someone that has done such great things in life? It could be a friend, a family or a pet…. Just be HAPPY! It’s waaaaay easier. Thank you again!,” she posted. “Thank you Jill Scott and Faizon Love!! I would also like say THANK YOU for the all the other intelligent people that know what this is! We are standing strong! Xoxo- Evin
After weeks of silence, it appears that the women in Cosby’s life are now insisting he is innocent to anyone who will listen. Only time will tell how this situation resolves itself as more women continue to come forward.
